“I’m better at everything now. I’ve been playing polo professionally for years. I’m lighter than I have been in years and a better polo player at 61 than ever before.”
What brought you to Cōpare? Was there one particular event that finally brought you to the breaking point?
I saw 299 on the scale. It scared me. I didn’t want to get over 300.
What were you most skeptical of when you first contacted Cōpare?
I wasn’t skeptical. I listened to sports radio, half the guys on there did the program. Grant’s brothers lost 200 lbs combined. I thought, “it sounds easy”. From the moment I walked in, I said ‘I’m going to be the poster child for this program. Anyone can do it. But you still have to want it, you have to follow the program.
What would you say to the people that supported you through your weight loss journey?
You need support. My wife is my biggest supporter, and the coaches. The coaches are unique in a way that they’re not only educated, they’re your friends too… I don’t want to disappoint them. It’s nice to get a little praise for your hard work. All the coaches, Alexa, Kim, Alison, they really got through to me. It’s a good feeling. Even my family who don’t see me everyday, who know me and my story, they couldn’t be prouder. They call me almost the minute I walk out of my weigh in. They want all the numbers. My wife dissects the body comp report every week and she’s kept them all.
Do you feel equipped to face the invariable challenges you’ll face in maintaining at/near your ideal weight?
Now that I’ve graduated I like coming back, it keeps me honest. I’ve been able to successfully maintain my weight for 6 weeks. I have the willpower now to stay focused on my health. I’m motivated to keep losing weight and focusing on getting my visceral fat down.
Why would you recommend others choose the personalized nutrition based program that Cōpare offers?
The combination of the structure, one-on-one coaching and weekly weigh-ins make Cōpare a clear winner. But when you add the graduate program that includes a coach for life – they’re in a league of their own.
